Happy Flashback Friday people! DJ Nabs toured the world for years with Kris Kross and has several old school videos over on his YouTube channel. Check out Kris Kross, Jermaine Dupri and DJ Nabs appearing on the Arsenio Hall Show…Chris “Mac Daddy” Kelly still had all his hair and Jermaine did too.
Also here’s the link to the actual interview where someone’s BEEPER when off onstage during the show and Arsenio calls em out. Hell naw! What year was this? Dayum I feel old.
Rap legend Doug E. Fresh is next up on the foreclosure train. Y’all betta recognize…this economy ain’t NO JOKE! Fresh, known for 80’s hits such as “The Show” and “La Di Da Di” (w/Slick Rick) has been hit recently by 3 (yes…THREE) foreclosure actions by banks looking to collect on over $3.5 million in unpaid mortgages on a trio of his Harlem homes.
The rapper, 46, also is being chased by American Express for nearly $60,000 in credit-card debt, and the IRS just slapped him with a $367,000 tax lien on top of more than $40,000 owed to the state tax collector, records show.
The golden-voiced rapper, whose real name is Douglas Davis, grew up in Harlem. After his skill at vocally imitating drumbeats and percussion sounds made him famous in the 1980s, he stayed in the neighborhood, investing in local real estate and raising five sons.
He fell behind in payments and, according to a foreclosure suit filed in Manhattan in late August, 2008, he now owes more than $1.73 million.
Davis is putting the finishing touches on Doug E’s Chicken and Waffles, a new Harlem restaurant slated to open next month.
Sorry for the neglect today…but I got sh*t to do!! So, while I go get my mind right, you guys can enjoy a little Funny Friday Flashback. The Ghetto Puppets ganked the Ghetto Boys’ “My Minds Playing Tricks on Me” and Bert stalks Elmo. This made me feel so much better!
Late rapper Tupac Shakur appeared on The Arsenio Hall show back in 1994. Can you believe that this was over 10 years ago?? It seems like yesterday Tupac was running rampant on the streets of the “A”…*sigh* I feel soooo ancient right about now.
Check out today’s flashback video, “Okay” ~ Nivea featuring Youngbloodz. As I was out enjoying the Atlanta sunshine today, I happened to put my “A” pod on random and this was the first song to play. Needless to say, I was pleasantly surprised since I was heading over to the nail shop. How appropriate! I always tell people my “A”pod knows me better than I know myself…I guess I’m right. Enjoy!
Lil Ike Bow Wow was spotted hanging out with Angela Simmons last week during fashion week in New York (and No…there was no sign of Superhead). Shad was also spotted chillin with the old folks at the “W” Friday night in the “A.” Funny part about seeing him around a 30-something crowd was that no bodyguards were necessary. Ha! Anyway…moving on, circulating around the net this week is Bow’s freestyle over Special Ed’s “I Got it Made.” The new version + a blast from the past under the cut: Continue Reading…
